Toronto Raptors, Pascal Siakam Agree to Max Contract Extension
A couple of short days before the start of the NBA regular season, the Toronto Raptors and Pascal Siakam have agreed to a contract extension.
News first broke via Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe of ESPN, the deal is reportedly worth the maximum $130-million over four-years. Rumours swirling earlier in the week suggested that a deal was imminent and that a maximum contract was a “virtual lock”. Earlier in the preseason, the Toronto Raptors also signed Kyle Lowry to a one-year, $31-million extension.

The 25-year old Siakam is coming off his best NBA season in which he averaged 16.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game, taking home Most Improved Player of the Year honours, helping lead the Raptors to their first NBA championship.
With contract work all taken care of, the Raptors will now turn their focus on their regular season debut when they face the new-look New Orleans Pelicans.
